During the company’s five years of partnership they have ensured seamless integration between leading technology providers and has enabled hundreds of B2B companies, such as merchants, wholesalers, and distributors across the UK and Ireland to generate over €200 million in online sales and mobile orders.

Now, award winning eCommerce provider Aphix Software and leading ERP and Business Management Software vendor Intact Software are celebrating.

The combination offers joint customers the option to launch any or all of the multiple digital ordering products developed by Aphix Software including; B2B eCommerce websites, mobile ordering applications available for sales reps and for customers.

These integrated solutions provide real-time information flow between the Intact ERP system which is at the heart of an Intact customers business and the Aphix Software platform.

The rapid growth in digital transformation is exposing the demanding need for B2B companies to tap into alternative revenue streams through expanding their business to include online sales orders.

The  B2B e-commerce market is worth £75 billion in the UK currently, which is more than double that of the B2C market, with similar trends elsewhere.

Forrester predicts that on a global level by 2020, B2B e-commerce will account for $6.7 trillion in trade worldwide and will be over twice the size of the B2C market at $3.2 trillion.

By choosing a solid digital strategy and an experienced eCommerce provider, it offers B2B companies the opportunity to grow by adding new customers and reaching new markets.

5 years ago, Intact Software had been regularly approached by customers looking for an online presence for their business. They needed a solution that could bring their traditional business model online and would integrate with their Intact system.

The increasing demand drove Intact Software to seek out a software partner who could offer a robust and reliable solution which they found in the Aphix Software platform.

Since then, Aphix and Intact have helped their joint customers to scale their businesses to new heights.


Intact Group Sales Director Mark McArdle said of the Aphix partnership “We had customers coming to us looking for a solution to the unique challenges they faced with getting their business model online. They could see the potential to grow their business with digital but were unsure where to turn.

They already trusted us to provide their ERP and knew it was vital that any online solution had to be able to ‘talk to’ their Intact system.

We worked closely with Aphix to deliver the right solution and 5 years on, we return to them again and again when customers come to us with the same problems and ambitions for growth.”


Aphix software CEO Graham O’Rourke cemented Aphix’s passion for helping B2B companies to grow and how the support of Intact and their customers has been vital in achieving this, “We passionately believe that by better connecting buyers and sellers we drive growth and simplify business for our customers.

Intact software and their customers have been paramount to our ability to do this and to continue to do this into the future. Without those first Intact customers trusting us to help them solve their unique business challenges we wouldn’t have been able to go on and help so many more.

We are now in a great position to work with B2B companies across the UK, Ireland and further afield to help them take advantage of the huge opportunities in the B2B marketplace to grow and scale their business with the right digital tools.”


Enterprise Ireland’s Niall McEvoy, ICT Accelerate Manager of EI’s High Potential Start-up Division said, “Aphix Software is an excellent example of an innovative Irish company that has identified a need for businesses and through this strategic partnership has seen how their client companies have increased productivity and efficiency in a cost-effective manner. Enterprise Ireland supports Irish companies with a global ambition to build scale and expand their reach in international markets, and we look forward to supporting Aphix Software through this next phase of growth.”
